  • StatPearls: Pes Anserine Bursitis [BOOK]
    StatPearls. StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL)MohseniMichaelMMayo ClinicGrahamCharlesCMayo Clinic FloridaBOOK
  • Bursitis is the general term used to describe inflammation of any bursae. The bursae are the cavitary structures lined with synovial tissue that cushion and assist during the motion of joints and muscles. Bursitis is usually accompanied by tenderness; however, swelling and redness may also be present. Pes anserine bursitis is a clinical entity associated with pain at the medial knee and upper tib…
  • Anserine bursa palpation tenderness is a risk factor for knee osteoarthritis progression and arthroplasty: data from the Osteoarthritis Initiative. [Journal Article]
    Clin Rheumatol. 2023 Feb; 42(2):519-527.Xiong T, Lin C, … Hao L
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study highlights the association between ABP and knee outcomes; therefore, clinicians should pay closer attention during the physical examination, especially in middle-aged and older female patients. Moreover, understanding ABP cause aids in better diagnosis and treatment. Key Points • This is the first study to identify an association between anserine bursa palpation tenderness and symptomatic knee osteoarthritis. • As opposed to most studies, which focus on intra-articular symptoms and signs, this study focused on extra-articular symptoms and signs. • Clinically, anserine bursa palpation tenderness can be utilized to determine patients at risk for the progression of knee osteoarthritis, thereby aiding in providing early therapeutic intervention.
  • Use of Non-Specific Knee Diagnoses and Incidence of Obscure Knee Injuries in a Large Government Health System. [Journal Article]
    Clin Epidemiol. 2022; 14:1123-1133.Rhon DI, Yuan X, … Cook CE
  • CONCLUSIONS: Most of the cohort (99.7%) received a non-specific diagnosis at their initial visit, but only 15% did not eventually receive a more specific diagnostic code. These findings suggest that diagnoses may become more specific over time as condition-specific signs and symptoms become more evident, and diagnostic workup excludes competing diagnoses. A better understanding of diagnostic patterns and criteria for knee pain will improve the quality and interpretation from epidemiological studies.
  • Diagnostic ultrasound and ultrasound-guided injections for peri-articular pain after knee replacement. [Journal Article]
    Skeletal Radiol. 2022 Sep 22 [Online ahead of print]Jardon M, Miller TT
  • CONCLUSIONS: While knee arthroplasty is an often-successful procedure, it can be complicated by post-operative peri-articular knee pain. Ultrasound provides a valuable tool for the diagnosis of painful peri-articular knee pathology, as it allows for both static and dynamic evaluation, as well as direct correlation with patient symptoms, and is not confounded by the metal components. In addition to its diagnostic utility, ultrasound can also guide diagnostic and/or therapeutic injections of anesthetic and corticosteroid. Given these advantages, ultrasound is an important tool in managing the painful post-arthroplasty knee.
  • StatPearls: Prepatellar Bursitis [BOOK]
    StatPearls. StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL)Rishor-OlneyColton R.CRConemaugh Memorial Medical CenterPozunAlexanderAConemaugh Memorial Medical CenterBOOK
  • Bursitis is the swelling or inflammation of a synovium-lined sac-like structure called a bursa. These are found throughout the body near bony prominences and between bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments.[1] They function to reduce friction between these structures. Inflammation of the bursa around large joints like the shoulder, knee, hip, and elbow may prompt patient visits to healthcare provi…
  • StatPearls: Stress Reaction and Fractures [BOOK]
    StatPearls. StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL)KielJohnJUniversity of Florida College of Medicine - JacksonvilleKaiserKimberlyKUniversity of KentuckyBOOK
  • Stress injuries represent a spectrum of injuries ranging from periostitis, caused by inflammation of the periosteum, to a complete stress fracture that includes a full cortical break. They are relatively common overuse injuries in athletes that are caused by repetitive submaximal loading on a bone over time. Stress injuries are often seen in running and jumping athletes and are associated with in…
  • Poor Accuracy of Clinical Diagnosis in Pes Anserine Tendinitis Bursitis Syndrome. [Journal Article]
    Indian J Orthop. 2022 Jan; 56(1):116-124.Atici A, Bahadir Ulger FE, … Aktas I
  • CONCLUSIONS: The medial joint space was found to be significantly lower in patients with PATBS, while there was no difference in any other knee pathologies between the two groups. The sensitivity and specificity of a PATBS clinical diagnosis were found to be low, and so it was concluded that clinical PATBS diagnoses may be inaccurate, particularly in the presence of such invasive therapies as injection, and that diagnoses based on imaging methods would be more accurate.
  • Short-Term Clinical Outcomes of High Tibial Osteotomy with the iBalance HTO System. [Journal Article]
    Bull Hosp Jt Dis (2013). 2019 Dec; 77(4):256-262.Thompson KA, Darden CN, … Jazrawi LM
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study suggests that the iBalance medial opening wedge HTO system implant can be used with comparable outcomes to traditional methods, however the conversion rate to total knee arthroplasty may be higher than previously reported. This appears to be unrelated to implant choice and likely related to extended indications for the procedure in younger patients refusing knee arthroplasty. The iBalance medial opening wedge HTO system has shown to be safe, removing many of the complications existing with other osteotomy implant options. Our findings highlight the importance of additional studies in order to investigate the risk factors causing progression from HTO to TKA.
  • Rupture of pes anserine bursa in a patient with pes anserine pain syndrome due to osteoarthritis. [Case Reports]
    J Med Invest. 2019; 66(1.2):211-212.Yagi S, Sata M
  • Pes anserinus pain syndrome is a common, clinically defined condition that is characterized by pain around the medial knee and tenderness over the upper medial tibia. The anserine bursa could be the site of proliferative and inflammatory conditions due to knee osteoarthritis, leading to pain and fluid retention. However, rupture of the pes anserinus is rare. Herein, we present a case of rupture o…
  • Musculoskeletal Therapies: Adjunctive Physical Therapy. [Review]
    FP Essent. 2018 07; 470:16-20.Beutler A
  • Physical therapy (PT) modalities are a diverse group of treatments for musculoskeletal pain. Iontophoresis, phonophoresis, kinesiology taping, laser therapy, and myofascial release are some of the most commonly used and are best considered as adjuncts to exercise. Each modality is relatively safe, but none is supported by high-quality evidence in the management of most musculoskeletal conditions.…

    Sultan Qaboos Univ Med J. 2018 Feb; 18(1):e97-e99.Ariff MAM, Ros MIAC, Yahaya NHM
  • Pes anserine bursitis (PAB) is an inflammation of the bursa located between the medial aspect of the tibia and the hamstring muscles. It is common in patients with degenerative or inflammatory knee arthritis, usually has a self-limiting course and tends to respond well to conservative treatment. However, painful PAB directly following total knee replacement surgery is rare. We report two such cas…
